I apologize I have been disconnected without a reliable internet source (data roaming off) and not all that unhappy about it (we are now in Australia). Our last big adventure in New Zealand, the whole point of going to Waitomo, was to go to three of the 382 caves found in Waitomo.
At the thought of leaving NZ, four dejected tourists hatch a plan.
we are supposed to leave New Zealand tomorrow for Australia but, to be truthful, we are sad. We only scratched the surface of this beautiful country and we didn’t even make it to the South Island (I know Cousin Susan that was dumb of me). We are currently staying on a 2500 acre sheep farm near Waitomo Caves (more on all of this later) and after spending the day caving yesterday, we decided it would better just to stay awhile. So rather than go through the bureaucracy of visas, hotel reservations and laundry, we have found the perfect disguise. Take care and we will be baaaack.
